About Sony ACID Pro 7

ACID Pro 7 from Sony Media Software is both a loop-based and linear music creation tool that allows for the production of original, royalty-free music. Songs can be created, tracks re-mixed, music beds developed, videos scored and music for Web sites and Flash animations developed. The addition of a fully functional mixer environment now allows the software to be seriously considered as a main Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) application in any studio situation.

The software features top quality automatic loop time-stretching and tempo-matching technology and is intuitive and easy to use with its straightforward pick, paint and play functionality. As before, source material can be pre-recorded loops in multiple genres, recorded hits or segments, complete songs, even MP3s. But with ACID Pro 7, multi-track recording and full MIDI sequencing take on a new functionality with unlimited tracks and the dedicated mixing console.

Files can be previewed, selected and dropped into place. Automatic real-time pitch-shifting, time-stretching and groove quantization of audio and MIDI events takes the stress out of assembling perfectly synced music. The software also supports video import. With the use of prerecorded audio, a soundtrack can easily be assembled. Even if the individual elements do not fit the hit points of the movie, with the use of markers and a few key strokes, the music can be slowed down or accelerated to hit as many points as required.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  can this be downloaded upon purchase from internet or do I need to wait for it in mail?
TIFFANY D  You can download the trial version and then unlock the full version when you get the disk. The only problem that I ran into with that is there are stock files included on the disk that don't download with the install file. You may be able to find them somewhere else on the site though.
claude l  Is this software as good as the original acid pro 7 ?? thanks !
WILLIAM M  Claude...I have all the Sony products, but seldom use Acid Pro 7, but that does not mean it is not a good program. It is rated very well. I am not a music creator, but use the Sony Movie Studio, Sound Forge 10 and CD Architect to create videos for youtube and for sale on my internet site, plus creating masters of my wife's educational music. There is a new product by Mixcraft called Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 that I would take a look at if you create music. It is a powerful program with much more included than Acid, I believe. Hope this helps
